The Spanish Foundation for Science and Technology (FECYT) , is a public foundation dependent on the Spanish Ministry of Science, Innovation and Universities. Our mission is to drive forward science, technology and innovation, promote their integration and proximity to Society and respond to the needs of the Spanish Technology and Business System (SECTE).

Since its creation in 2001, the foundation is focused in increasing the interest and the participation of the Spanish citizens in Science. FECYT also supports the Ministry of Science, Innovation and Universities in promoting Open Science and the internationalization of Spanish science.
